8/08/2012 About Alpine Sequences
My new album is now available for listening/purchasing in tape & digital formats for $5 from my new label Hel Audio. "Alpine Sequences" is a collection of short, (mostly) ambient songs that are based around procedurally generated synthesizer sequences.
These recordings were inspired by local Utah geography (Utah, Salt Lake, and Heber valleys in particular) and the song titles reflect this. Lone Peak and Pfeifferhorn are mountains, Hailstone and Keetley are submerged ghost towns, 189 is the road connecting Heber valley and Utah valley, and so on.
The sequences were generated by my prototypical Alpine Music Generation System, which is a method I've slowly been working on to create music within rules I determine, but without my creative input. I started with a batch of 40 sequences for this project, and ended up 20 songs for the album.
